Building Everlasting Love: The Blueprint for Strong Foundations in Marriage (Part One)



Building strong foundations for marriage requires intentional effort and commitment from both spouses. Before we give you key principles though, you need to know that one of the strongest foundations you can have is a relationship with Jesus Christ! When He is the center of your marriage, you are not self-focused but others-focused, which makes for a beautiful start and a lasting legacy! Allow Him to be your architect, as you build your marriage.


Once that is firmly established, you can begin to add some key principles that will make your foundation even stronger:


  1. Effective Communication: Open, honest, and respectful communication is essential. Make sure to listen actively to your spouse, express your feelings and needs clearly, and work together to resolve conflicts constructively.

  2. Trust and Transparency: Trust forms the cornerstone of any successful marriage. Be transparent with each other, keep your promises, and avoid behaviors that undermine trust.

  3. Shared Values and Goals: Discuss your values and long-term goals openly. Ensure that you both have a shared vision for your life together and are committed to supporting each other's aspirations.

  4. Respect and Support: Show appreciation and respect for each other's opinions, choices, and individuality. Be each other's biggest cheerleader and provide unwavering support through life's challenges.

  5. Quality Time Together: Prioritize spending quality time together to nurture your connection. Whether it's through shared hobbies, date nights, or simply enjoying each other's company, make time for meaningful interactions.


Remember that building a strong foundation for marriage is an ongoing process that requires commitment, patience, and a willingness to work together as a team. By prioritizing these principles, you can create a resilient and fulfilling marriage that stands the test of time.
